As I recall the 85/88 setup, Godbout initially did not want to invest
in an OEM license for MS-DOS, so a procedure was worked out where a
standard PC-DOS ($40 from your local IBM retailer) system was used as
the starting point with a new set of I/O drivers installed.
I used to have such a disk for test purposes--but I don't recall if I
still have it.
